The breeding plan is to now mate this cock bird with a hen Sex-linked This species is extremely nomadic and has kept constant in colour and form due to the integration throughout its range. light green (lime) For further reading there are a couple of related articles that were added to our website in 1999 This clearly shows the variation in overall plumage colours This species is mainly nomadic, but like the Rainbow some resident populations have developed around east coast towns and cities. since developed more pronounced areas of lighter green plumage but still When the extent of the Australian continent is considered with its huge climatic and habitat variations it is surprising that the lorikeets evolved are limited to three Trichoglossus (the Rainbow, Scaly-breasted and Red-collared); one Psitteuteles (the Varied); and three Glossopsitta (the Musk, Little and Purple-crowned).return to top. Suspended wire cages housing single pairs of lorikeets has proved to be a most successful and controlled method of breeding. normal scaly yellow barring on green chest although the yellow areas olive-green coloured plumage. by 2001 prices are starting to rise to $200 and $250. musk and try to get offspring closer to a musk but with grey-green plumage. Scaly-breasted Lorikeet from long term breeding patterns (ie statistics!) The most common of the colour mutations associated with Lories are described There is considerable colour variation throughout the range, most noticeable in the far north where the birds are smaller and have a brighter more evenly coloured blue head and abdomen. (evolution's natural selection I have an unconfirmed report of a Lutino in a New South Wales aviary, there is a cinnamon mutation established in South Africa, and I know of three yellow birds in New South Wales that don't conform to normal patterns. available with wild flocks of lories and naturally occuring mutations are the mutation. parrots. This leads to an interesting point that many aviculturists believe the - Cinnamon As the name implies this is the smallest member of the Australian lorikeets. Some breeders have created a new line of mutations in some lory types by web site then we would be very pleased to hear from you. - Lutino in the musk lorikeet that produce the head and side cheek red patches). and highlights the plumage colour differences between the three birds. This was not a The last two images (above) show the 18month cinnamon where the plumage is A new publication in the 'Guide to' series from ABK Publications. one or more features from the expected 'normal' Lory. Grey-green scalies are quite common in New Zealand and a few grey-green rainbows have The Musk Lorikeet ranges through eastern and south eastern Australia and Tasmania from Bowen in North Queensland to Spencer Gulf in South Australia. cinnamon type mutation. Their beaks are long and narrow and the tongue has elongated papillae which form a brush like tip adapted for the collection of pollen and nectar. This mutation is dominant, meaning that when it attentions of raptors and other predators. The Rainbow Lorikeet is widely distributed along the coastal strip from Cape York south to Victoria and into South Australia. The Varied Lorikeet ranges across the whole of tropical northern Australia and is numerous wherever there is a suitable food source. Three or four eggs are laid and incubated by the female for an average of twenty days and fledge around seven to eight weeks of age. (The background tile pattern to this page is an grey-green Scaly lorikeet). to establish this colour mutation, it may now be totally lost. This is probably because of the large gene-pool established breeding pair that always produce visuals. Recessive means that either parent can pass on the genes to its offspring. The Rainbow is a popular pet bird in Australia, with probably several thousand being sold each year. olive colour into Rainbows and Musks as it is considered not to be a totally recessive. If a bird visually shows to be a colour mutation then it is known as a producing visuals, the ultimate goal of may breeders. The editorial is interesting The most important aspect of lorikeet management is cleanliness. established breeding pair that always produce visuals. There are only three members:  The Iris Lorikeet; the Varied Lorikeet (the Australian representative) and the Goldie's Lorikeet from New Guinea. The centre image shows the two cinnamons with a normal green scaly (front) breeders consider this an unacceptable practice because the result is an Added to this basic diet each pair is fed half an apple and silverbeet daily. It ranges across the north western section of Australia from approximately the Northern Territory/Queensland border in the east to Broome, Western Australia in the west. Resident populations do not appear to have developed as with the other Australian Trichoglossus, although I am told that some Red-collared can usually be observed in the Darwin area all year round. colour variations of well known and popular lorikeet breeds such as stunning new colour variations. since developed more pronounced areas of lighter green plumage but still Two eggs are laid and incubated by the female for an average of twenty-three days, and the chicks fledge in eight to nine weeks. If you have any questions or comments on lories, lorikeets or any part of this I have been told of a Lutino Little Lorikeet being held in a north Queensland aviary, although this is not fully confirmed.return to top. In aviaries this species breeds in late winter and spring, when two eggs are laid and incubated by the female for an average of twenty-two days, although quite variable incubation periods have been recorded. breeding experiments. The produce mutations because of their uncommon plumage colours, often striking It is the only sexually dimorphic species of Australian lorikeet. more, separate colour mutation blood lines are available These are sure to appeal to many people who will be attracted by these Both Cinnamon, Blue-breasted and a full Blue mutation have been reported. (this is the same rule for sex-linked) Parrots ISBN 0957702469 (paperback) ISBN 0957702477 (hardback) The off-white to tan coloured flight feathers are seen also likely a hybrid as she lacks many of the rainbow features (eg no green complex subject with over 700 colour images of parrot mutations. The chicks fledge between eight and nine weeks old. breeders consider this an unacceptable practice because the result is an This constitutes the daily maintenance diet which is designed to keep lorikeets in a healthy, trim condition without inducing weight gains.

Feeding stations are best constructed of wire mesh so that all discarded and wasted food falls through to the floor, thus avoiding possible contamination. tonails, pink skinned feet and the area of red tinged plumage around her beak. supporting or seen to be approving of the breeding of unnatural bird mutations. Despite several breeders having This is the largest member of the exclusively Australian genus Glossopsitta. The Purple-crowned is also a small lorikeet being only slightly larger than the Little Lorikeet. Again there is little colour variation throughout the extensive range of this extremely nomadic species, which suggest considerable integration within this range. She is not generations to produce visual males and females and therefore create an A visual male paired with a visual female will produce 100% visual offspring - have any information you can add then please contact: Like all our Australian lorikeets, the Rainbow is mainly nomadic, moving in search of its food sources of pollen, nectar, fruits, seeds, vegetable matter, and a few insects. have in Many breeders consider this type of unnatural hybrid/mutation production as but with eyes red, ruby, brown through to normal black. have interbred to produce naturally occuring hybrids. producing visuals, the ultimate goal of may breeders. Establishing which method applies enables breeders to determine the best These figures have been calculated This is probably because of the large gene-pool They are the Blue Scaly-breasted, which has occurred at least twice but has not been established; the Olive Scaly-breasted which appeared first in Queensland about fifteen years ago, and can now be classed as an established aviary mutation; the Cinnamon which has occurred at least twice, and is currently being worked on by Queensland and New South Wales aviculturists; and a Jade or Laurel-green Scaly which is being worked on in a Queensland aviary.return to top. (see below), Hybids and Mutations of Lories are Lories that are in general different in The interesting feature of these two hybrids is that apart from the Other Australian article on genetics are good also. In nature, mutations are constantly occuring but with lories, colour mutations An increasing population around Perth, in Western Australia, is thought to be derived from escaped aviary birds. The lower two images are of a 18month cinnamon hen, she has distinct light flock of normal lories. I have recorded one mutation in this species of lorikeet from a description of a mutant bird seen in a nest in South Australia in 1927 and duly recorded in "The Emu" Vol 59. Little Lorikeet colour mutation line becoming strong and established. Little Lorikeets are plentiful within their range wherever a suitable food source is available, but they have not adapted well to human habitation and are seldom seen within our cities.
